Sex for asylum

On the front page of today's Observer there is a shocking piece about a young woman seeking asylum who was offered, by the chief immigration officer at Lunar House in Croydon, help with her case in return for sex.

This woman had been raped in Zimbabwe and was still experiencing violence while in the UK. Instead of advising her in a professional way, this official saw her as a target for sexual exploitation. This exposes how abusive, oppressive, exploitative the immigration laws are and this case is probably just the tip of the iceberg.

Here's a thought, Mr Reid, what about scrapping the racist immigration laws!
